PetSafe Patio Pet Door Installation
Petsafe Patio Pet Door Replacement Flap Installation
Can you still lock your patio door?
Yes, the door comes with a locking mechanism for your sliding door track to secure the panel and your slider.
Do you carry the replacement brackets?
We do not carry the bracket metal kit for installation, that would have to be purchased through PetSafe.
Does the locking mechanism require drilling?
Yes, the mechanism provided is intended to lock your sliding glass door by using a bracket that can be mounted on your slider with sheet metal screws. The lock on the pet door then engages the bracket, locking the door closed.
Does this come with an insert that you can slide into the cover and lock the dog door?
Yes it does!
How high is the rise?
The rise (alternatively called the step-over) is 1 ¾" for the Small and Medium flaps, 4 ¼" for the Large, and 8 ¼" for the Tall Large. This means that we only really recommend the largest door size for very large tall dog breeds like great danes.
Can it be easily and quickly removed?
The Freedom Patio Panel Pet Door can be easily removed and installed due the spring loaded height adjuster; however, it is recommended to screw the panel into your slider frame for a semi-permanent installation to aid in stability, and ensure the locking capabilities provided with the locking mechanism.
What type of flap does the PetSafe Freedom Patio Doggy Door have?
The Petsafe Freedom aluminum patio panel has a single flap that is flexible, tinted, and made from vinyl material.
What is the insulation value like on this door?
The Freedom Panel is intended for use in moderate climates and features relatively fair insulation value. It has some energy efficient features in the vinyl flap, but it is not meant to be highly weather resistant or shatter-resistant.
How wide is the entire panel? I want to know how much room I will have left to exit the doorway after installation.
The Small flap size has a panel width of 8 ½", the Medium is 11 ½", and the Large and Tall Large sizes have 13 ½" panel widths. You can find the flap opening width on the size chart.
What is the warranty like?
The manufacturer ensures a 1 year warranty on this product.
Is the tempered glass opaque or transparent (clear or shaded)?
The freedom petsafe panel has single pane tempered glass which is clear. Some other pet patio door panels have dual pane glass and lowE coating to increase their insulation.
If I order a 01PS11 what will I receive?
That is the code for Petsafe Freedom Dog Door for Sliding Glass Door. You will need to determine the flap size, Track height and Frame Color.
Does the Freedom Petsafe pet door come in different models.
Yes. There is a patio panel for sliding glass doors and a traditional pet door for doors.
